If you press the 'Options' button for Lightning in about:addons Seamonkey hangs. See screenshot for button location.

Using Options button from the Extensions list works so does using the preferences dialog.

See Bug 636104 - Redirect Lightning Preferences to the Suite Preferences window.
Bug 636104 redirected the main Options button. But the Detail View section has another Options button.

<button id="detail-prefs-btn" class="addon-control preferences"
........
        command="cmd_showItemPreferences"/>

I can't confirm the hang with 2.45a2 build from 20160429.

What I can confirm with that build is, that after clicking on "Options" nothing happens (but, as said, SeaMonkey does not hang).
Here (Seamonkey 2.40, Lightning 4.5b1, Windows NT 6.1, WOW64) it does happen - the current window gets "locked":

- Open a new browser window, press Ctrl-Shift-A to open Add-on-manager,
- select Lightning Add-On and click "Options".

It seems that the preferences dialog gets the focus (in a "modal dialog" way) yet it stays invisible - meaning that the window is not accessible anymore. (Also the usual error sound is played that occours when one tries to switch away from a modal dialog to an application window.)

Pressing ESC or Alt-F4 to close the invisible dialog does not help.

The only way out seems to be shutting down Seamonkey. (That is, if you happen to have other windows open - note that those don't get blocked.)
Stefan,

using options in the main menu works for me in 2.47 the same as it did in 2.45. It only hangs trying to use options when you doubleclicked on Lightning and use the option button in the second panel there. See screenshot.

Do you see the Calendar preferences in the prefs dialog? If not you might have a corrupted installation.

yes, opening Calendar preferences over the menu works for me.

I just wanted to point out that unlike comment 3 I can reproduce your bug (clicking on 'Options' button as shown in your screenshot).

Also not my whole application hangs, but only the active window (the one holding the Add-on manager tab), other windows remain responsive. (I was going to report the same bug, but then found this one - so I just commented, hoping the additional information about the nature of the "hanging" might be useful.)
